Default Vizualtech renderings of Dodge Challenger GT racer

Quote:
http://www.motorauthority.com/vizual...-gt-racer.html

Vizualtech, a Swedish design firm that specializes in constructing virtual 3D models of cars and boats, has just released this set of nine images on its blog, depicting a Dodge Challenger decked out in GT racing livery and aerodynamic modifications.

Side-mounted exhaust pipes, a chunky rear diffuser and a huge rear spoiler all give the Dodge Challenger an even bolder, more aggressive look. Large slats in the rear-wheel arches should help to cool the brakes down, while the front spoiler should improve downforce and give the Challenger much improved handling.

While Vizualtech is only a design firm, and not a manufacturer, the renderings hint at the possibilities that lay ahead for the Dodge Challenger. Seeing a Dodge Challenger competing head-to-head against other American muscle cars such as the Chevrolet Corvette in European GT racing is something that would promise to be entertaining and hopefully some enterprising racing teams are inspired by the renderings to make Vizualtech's vision come true.

Dodge already has some experience in FIA GT3 European racing, and the company was chosen to be the supplier of official cars for the 2006 event.

at the thought of Dodge building anything, much less a Challenger, to compete in any sort of racing series any time in the foreseeable future.

Yeah, because they are going to make this for the street

It's a rendering, that while bad ass, is completely pointless and will never reach fruition given Chrysler's current predicament.

As much as I loathe this car I have to say it looks pretty good in GT trim. I'm willing to bet an old GT prepped R34 would cackslap it though.

What exactly is the point of companies like visualtech? they produce drawings of cars that will never be used? I mean, in the big picture, what do they get paid to do?

They probably use these as attention grabbers or displays of their abilities so other corporations will use them for smaller projects.

Where do you think they got the ideas for the Skyline in the first place? In the beginning Japanese auto manufactures borrowed heavily from early American designs. The tails on the Skyline are the biggest example. Look at the Corvette's tails. Thank god they kept doing more and more innovative designs and now have evolved into what they are today.

Finally someone fixed the main problem with the Challenger. The damn thing is to tall and needs to be lower to the ground.

So is that a car or a boat?
Base Challengers are being advertised in Chciago for $22,500.
